Full-Day Tour from Cairo: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Memphis, and Saqqara
USD 14.30
Overview

The Giza pyramid complex contains the fabled relics of Egypt’s Old Kingdom, constructed a whopping 4,500 years ago. Get a peek at one of the world’s top historical attractions, which includes the Valley Temple, the Saqqara necropolis, and the mysterious, timeless Sphinx. First-time visitors to Egypt—or travelers short on time—will be able to tick off all the sights during this in-depth, full-day guided sightseeing tour from Cairo.

What to Expect

Ancient Lower Egypt’s great rulers marked their territory with timeless monuments, larger-than-life relics of their once-mighty reign. In this in-depth, full-day guided visit to the Giza pyramid complex, get a firsthand glimpse of one of the world’s most powerful kingdoms.

After front-door pickup from your Giza or Cairo hotel, travel back to the time of the pharaohs as you admire the massive blocks of the world-famous limestone pyramids. Learn about their hidden temples and chambers, witnesses to complex funeral rites.

From there, head to the Valley of Temples, ruled by the mysterious, legendary Sphinx. Get a chance to snap unforgettable photos of the famous seated lion, whose head resembles the ancient King Chephren.

After a savory lunch at an authentic local restaurant (own expense), visit the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, which marked a new style of monument, and the powerful statues of ancient Memphis, built in 3100 BC.

Essam only knew basics and took us to expensive shops so he can collect commission

Our guide, Essam from Emo Tours, only knew the basic knowledge of Egypt and when we asked deeper questions he gave us false information. There were many times when he gave us answers that we had to double check with google or our second guide...More
